All of the State’s Veterans Service Offices will be closed for annual training and certification from Tuesday, June 4 through Friday, June 7, as all of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs Veteran Service Officers will be attending mandatory annual training and certification at the Decatur Conference Center & Hotel, Decatur IL.

Veterans wishing to contact a VSO during this period may use the “Stand Up and Be Counted” (SUBC) online tool at or call 1-800-437-9824.

Veterans enrolling in SUBC will be assisting their fellow veterans by helping IDVA and the entire veteran advocacy community to gain a better understanding of the location and number of Illinois’ veterans. This will help in planning future services, seeking additional federal VA funding and facilities, and generally help to serve Illinois’ veterans better.
